Services

Speech-Language Therapy 

Speech therapists can help with communication, eating and more. 

We provide services to children, teens and young adults with developmental, neurological and congenital impairments.  Services can be habilitative (learning a skill for the first time) or rehabilitative (becoming more proficient at a skill or relearning a skill).  We focus on improving a child's ability to interact with and enjoy his environment.  

If you notice difficulties in one or more of these areas, an evaluation and treatment may be appropriate: 

  • Articulation/ Phonemic Awareness
  • Auditory Processing 
  • Communication
  • Oral Movement for speech and eating 
  • Phonological Awareness/ Phonological Processing
  • Voice/ Fluency 

Some of our speech therapy specialty services are:

All of our speech therapists hold Masters degrees and Certificates of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and are licensed by the state of North Carolina.
